What Is Food Waste Action Week?

Words by Harrison Read

We visited The Felix Project with Kitche to learn more...

4.5 million tonnes of edible food is thrown away each year by UK households.

Shockingly, 25% of this wasted food is due to cooking, preparing or serving too much - this costs UK households £3.5 billion each year. 

That is why Love Food Hate Waste is dedicating a whole week of action to shining a light on how simple behaviours to reduce food waste can save time and money. 

'This will ultimately reduce the impact of food waste on climate change.'

The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold.

They deliver this surplus food to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.

Kitche is a free mobile app designed to save you money and reduce your food waste at home.

Easily import your food to keep track of what you have at home to find 1000s of recipes, based on products you have.
